or at the consulate at benghazi? they're saying some people were from outside the country and some even al qaeda ties. what's the latest information? >> jake, it's important to know that there's an fbi investigation that has begun and it will take some time to be completed. that will tell us with certainly what transpired. our current assessment, is that fact what began as was a spontaneous not a premeditated response to what had transpired in cairo, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this video that was disseminated. we believe that folks in benghazi, a small number of people came to the consulate to replicate this sort of challenge that was posed in cairo and then as that unfolded, it seems as hijacked, let's us say, by some individual clusters of extremists that came with heavier weapons, weapons as you know, in the wake of the revolution in libya are quite common and accessible. then it evolved from there. we'll get to see exactly what the investigation finally confirms. but that's the best information that we have at present. >> why was there such a security breakdown
in egypt and libya, tragically ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed in benghazi, governor romney has attempted to make some political attacks out of the situation. and here is what he said. >> i think it's a-- a -- -- a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values. >> rose: president obama responded in kind in a conversation with cbs news. >> governor romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and name later. >> rose: the question is will this issue influence voters come november. more generally, how the nominees shaping up now that the conventions are out of the way. joining me from washington john dickerson, the political director of cbs news and a correspondent for "slate" magazine. and i am pleased to have him on this program. what do you make of this, john? >> well, it's funny, as you said, there has not been a lot of talk about foreign policy and it is the issue over which a president actually has a lot of control as president. the ecomy, the pside doesn't have that much control. what i make of it is governor romney wants to force play
to say it is mostly tripoli and been gauzy -- benghazi but i'm talking about people training themselves. they observe the elections in egypt. working with the germans and various other areas to develop this awareness of what is going on. again, though, that this not hitting the militias who are largely unemployed young people who need something to do with their lives. they need a certain amount of training. the south has been neglected in that. part of it is a security thing. is it -- it is in a state of frozen conflict. i do not think any ngo would have the security to sustain a presence there. it is a state of frozen conflict. >> this what you're talking about was imported from an nog from the united states. -- ngo from the united states. >> a more general point, i think if you look at public opinion polls, what you see is a discrepancy between the attitude people have toward the united states and the attitude against it as policy. there is no indication that outreach really buys an understanding or an acceptance of u.s. policy. they seemed to travel in different directions. they show
